Oklahoma sophomore RB Trey Sermon (leg) will be re-evaluated upon the team's return to Norman after leaving Saturday's game at TCU with an apparent lower leg injury.

Following Oklahoma's 52-27 victory HC Lincoln Riley said that the prognosis for Sermon "looks promising." Good news regarding the sophomore's health would certainly be welcome, as Oklahoma's starting running back Rodney Anderson suffered a season-ending torn ACL in early September.

Oklahoma redshirt junior WR Lee Morris caught two passes for 36 yards with two scores in a 52-27 rout of TCU on Saturday.

Morris (6'2/212) has been a threat in the red zone all year, and Saturday was obviously no exception. He's now scored five touchdowns in his last three games, with these two coming from nine and 27 yards out, respectively. Morris will try and score again next Saturday against Kansas State.
Oct 20 - 4:05 PM

Oklahoma sophomore WR CeeDee Lamb picked up 91 yards receiving on five receptions with a touchdown in a 52-27 victory on Saturday over TCU.

Lamb was the top target for Kyler Murray in this one, and he opened the scoring in the middle of the first with a 37-yard romp to the end zone from Kyler Murray to make it 7-0 Sooners. Lamb didn't have many big plays after that, but the passing game didn't need to make many plays with Oklahoma able to gash the TCU defense with the run. He and the Sooners will take on Kansas State next Saturday.
Oct 20 - 4:02 PM

Oklahoma sophomore RB Trey Sermon picked up two touchdowns and 110 yards on 17 carries in a 52-27 rout of TCU on Saturday.

Sermon's first score was a four-yard plunge in the first quarter, and the tailback found paydirt again on a 33-yard dash that opened up the Oklahoma lead to 42-27 early in the fourth quarter. The 6-foot, 224-pound tailback also had 63 yards receiving on two catches, so it's another solid all-around day for the sophomore. Expect another one next Saturday against Kansas State.
Oct 20 - 3:58 PM

Oklahoma redshirt freshman RB Kennedy Brooks ran for 168 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in a 52-27 victory on Saturday against TCU.

Brooks (5'/10/205) and Trey Sermon split carries, and both went over 100 yards. While Sermon had two scores, it was Brooks who had the bigger yardage day, and he was able to find the end zone himself on a 21-yard scamper to give the Sooners a 21-7 lead. Brooks has now gone over the century mark in two-of-three games, and he's made the loss of Rodney Anderson much less damaging than it probably should have been for Oklahoma. He and the Sooners get Kansas State next Saturday.
Oct 20 - 3:54 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray completed 19-of-24 passes for 213 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 51 yards in a 52-27 victory over TCU on Saturday.

Not a huge yardage game from the Heisman contender, but that's nitpicking. Murray had no trouble finding open receivers against the Horned Frogs, and the Sooners were also able to gash the TCU defense for 323 yards on the ground. In his first -- and very likely last -- year as the starting quarterback for the Sooners, Murray now has a 21/3 TD/INT ratio and impressive 71.3 completion percentage. We'll see him back on the field next Saturday against Kansas State.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell hears that it's not outside the realm of possibility that Oklahoma redshirt junior T Cody Ford could receive some Day 1 draft interest.

At this juncture, Campbell is being told that a high selection on Day 2 probably represents the ceiling of Ford's stock, but sounds as though Day 1 is not out of the question if things break right. Especially if the 6-foot-4, 338-pound redshirt junior continues to impress as he has early in the season. To whit, Ford did not allow a single quarterback pressure on his 18 snaps in pass protection against Army in that thriller of a win several weeks back.

Oklahoma named assistant head coach and defensive tackles coach Ruffin McNeill interim defensive coordinator.

The Sooners fired Mike Stoops on Monday after giving up 33 points in a victory over Baylor two weeks ago and 48 (and 501 total yards) in a loss to Texas last week. Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley and McNeill have a long history together. They coached together at Texas Tech from 2007-09. When McNeill was hired as coach of East Carolina, he hired Riley as his offensive coordinator. Riley served in that function from 2010-14 before moving on to Norman. In June 2017, after he'd been named head coach at Oklahoma, Riley hired McNeill on as an assistant coach.

Oklahoma fired defensive coordinator Mike Stoops.

The announcement comes less than 48 hours after the Sooners' 48-45 loss on to Texas, the most points ever scored against OU in the Red River Showdown. After the game, Stoops took the blame. "I'm extremely disappointed in my ability to get this team to play at a higher level," he said. "Certainly, I take a lot of that responsibility. That's for sure." HC Lincoln Riley has promoted assistant HC and DT coach Ruffin McNeill to defensive coordinator for the rest of the season. Stoops, the former HC at Arizona, is the younger brother of former Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops and older brother of Kentucky HC Mark Stoops.

Oklahoma junior WR Marquise Brown caught nine passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-45 loss to Texas.

Brown (5'10/168) came through with scoring grabs of four yards (in the first quarter) and 77 yards (in the third quarter). This was just the continuation of what's been a marvelous season put forth by the junior wideout to date. This was Brown's fourth game of at least 130 yards receiving, and he's now caught at least one touchdown pass in every game this season outside of OU's narrow win over Army several weekends back. He's working to a 33-675-7 receiving line for the campaign as a whole.
Oct 6 - 4:56 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray completed 19-of-26 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 92 yards and a score in Saturday's 48-45 loss to Texas.

Murray and the Sooners trailed 45-24 heading into the fourth quarter, but he would lead the team all the way back to tie the game before Texas calmed the waters long enough to put together a final go-ahead drive. The redshirt junior got the comeback started with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Lee Morris with 8:45 remaining in the contest, then followed that scoring toss up with a blistering 67-yard run to glory to draw OU within a touchdown on the scoreboard. Trey Sermon would knot up the score with a seven-yard touchdown run a short while later, before Texas came back from the finishing blow. Tough loss aside, Murray has now accounted for a hearty 26 total touchdowns through six games played.
Oct 6 - 4:51 PM

Oklahoma junior WR Marquise Brown snagged five balls for 132 yards and two scores in Saturday's 66-33 win over Baylor.

Brown (5'10/168) once again functioned as Kyler Murray's go-to receiver. Outside of last week's game against Army, the funky near-upset where Brown was held without a catch, he's had a minimum of 88 receiving yards and one touchdown in the other four games. Hollywood and his Oklahoma Sooners have a big rivalry game on deck against Texas.
Sep 29 - 7:30 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray completed 17-of-21 passes for 432 yards and six touchdowns in Saturday's 66-33 demolition of Baylor.

He also ran for 45 yards and a seventh score. Murray did not start the game as punishment for being late to Friday's practice. He entered to begin the team's second offensive series. From there, he lit up Baylor on nearly every series he participated in. Murray may be headed to the Oakland A's to begin a professional baseball career after this season, but his athleticism and arm talent play just as well on the gridiron. He's officially entered the Heisman race as a legitimate contender.

Oklahoma sophomore TE Grant Calcaterra rejoined his teammates on the sideline after suffering an apparent shoulder injury during the first quarter of Saturday's game against Baylor.

Calcaterra suffered the injury on a 30-yard touchdown reception, with team trainers taking him back to the locker room for further evaluation. Calcaterra returned to the sideline shortly thereafter, and he has since been allowed to play.
Sep 29 - 4:42 PM

Oklahoma sophomore TE Grant Calcaterra (shoulder) was taken to the locker room by team trainers after suffering an injury during the first quarter of Saturday's game against Baylor.

According to a report trainers were looking at Calcaterra's right shoulder, which he was seen favoring after catching a 30-yard touchdown pass from Kyler Murray. Oklahoma has yet to announce the severity of the injury and whether or not the sophomore will be able to return.
